Best Answer

Yes. It happens all the time. Every time we make a choice, it is a conscious choice, while subconscious choices are made for us.

Example: Where food is concerned, we can consciously make a choice, burgers or chicken. We will consciously choose where to go for it, or stay home to make it ourselves.

Subconsciously, the body realized it's hungry, and what it's hungry for on a more molecular level.

Are dreams what you want to really happpen?

No, it means that you want it to happen but it won't. Not necessarily. Some dreams are nothing more than reflections of random mental processes, as your mind sorts through your emotions, memories and experiences. But there are many different types of dreams, some of which are messages to you from your own mind. Wish-fulfillment dreams express things that you want, either consciously or subconsciously. But many other dreams express things you fear. Nightmares and dreams of shame, anger or humiliation serve to relieve the stress of these emotions. They can also provide a sort of rehearsal, in the sense of presenting a scenario that allows you to act out a threatening situation in different ways. See attached link for further information.

Men naturally want to be heroes, save things, and fix things. He could just want to be your hero or he could subconsciously fear your death.

So the dream could be an exaggeration of your boyfriend's fear of losing your affection.
